Sherwin-Williams Chemical Coatings is now Product Finishes

Sherwin-Williams announces that its Chemical Coatings Division has been renamed Product Finishes. Following the acquisitions of industrial wood finishing leaders Becker Acroma and Sayerlack in 2010, the newly expanded Sherwin-Williams Product Finishes Division now boasts a very strong presence in Europe, adding significant manufacturing and distribution capabilities.  These acquisitions also added to the company’s existing infrastructure in China and Asia, doubling its capabilities. “The time was right to reflect our expanded footprint with a name that articulates the division’s focus on providing finishes that meet customers’ performance, compliance and aesthetic demands," said Drew McCandless, president of the Product Finishes Division. Sherwin-Williams Product Finishes Division, with the addition of technical centers, manufacturing facilities and substantial distribution infrastructure around the globe, enables Sherwin-Williams to deliver coatings systems to OEMs and manufacturers quickly and efficiently. “Welcoming Becker Acroma and Sayerlack into the Sherwin-Williams family is an enormous win for our global customers,” said McCandless.
